Unlike most TV shows, which record their episodes well in advance, WWE has the advantage of being able to change course on a weekly basis, depending on factors like injuries, audience reactions, or, in some cases, an inability to put together a coherent storyline. As a result, over the years, a great many feuds and storylines in WWE have been dropped completely without warning, with everyone involved moving on to other things, and no mention ever being made of their existence. Well, except by disgruntled wrestling fans who might have wanted to know how things were supposed to pan out, of course. Here are some of the most egregious examples of WWE suddenly deciding to drop a storyline, many for no reason that was ever revealed.
10. “I Still Remember”
This one came and went so fast we’d be surprised if anyone remembers it happening at all. Frankly, we can’t believe it ourselves, but at any rate, in the midst of the mess that was WWE in 2003, Booker T was in the locker room talking to new Superstar Jon Heidenreich (who we’ll get to, don’t worry), when he discovered a mysterious note that simply said “I Still Remember”. Speculation immediately started on who might be attempting to get Booker T’s attention, with the majority generally feeling that it was going to end up being Booker’s former tag team partner, Goldust, because when you think of wrestlers who have spent their careers stalking people in disturbing ways, Goldust generally jumps to the top of the list. Unfortunately, the perpetrator was never revealed, and in fact, the note was never mentioned again, and Booker T immediately moved on to other pursuits.
